Details

This plant was first mentioned in America in 1842. This rare beauty is not a true foxglove, but its flowers are similarly shaped and hang in clusters. The elegant white blooms open in succession from summer to fall and are good for cutting. The gray-green foliage has a distinct nutty fragrance and is deer resistant. This is an excellent choice for a moon garden, where its flowers will seemingly glow!
